|Goat Cheese and Grape Pork|
I found a great deal on a small pork tender loin at my local store and wanted to try something special. I had already utilized grapes in a crostini recipe but thought it would be great stuffed into a pork loin. Pork always goes great with fruits. There is just something about that combination. This was so easy and quick to make. Just mix up the ingredients, filet the pork, roll it up, tie it up, pan sear, and then bake. It is that simple. I then took the extra grapes, sautéed them with some liquor and created a fantastic sauce that could be drizzled over the pork for serving.
The flavors in this dish actually complimented each other. The tartness from the goat cheese and the sweetness from the grapes went great with the pork. Serve with a little rice or potatoes and viola, a great weekend or weeknight meal for you and your family. Goat Cheese and Grape Pork Loin.
